West Palm Beach Single Car Accidents Attorney
Contact this West Palm Beach Single Car Accident Lawyer for assistance. There’s no denying that being in a car accident is frightening, stressful and often embarrassing. However, when you involved in a single-vehicle accident, all those negative emotions and stigma feel especially strong.
As the name suggests, a single-vehicle accident or collision is a crash where there’s impact on only one vehicle. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t other vehicles involved in causing the crash, but they aren’t involved in the collision itself. Examples of these types of accidents include a vehicle’s crashing into a tree, pole, or another obstacle, speeding, running off of the road, running over unexpected debris, hitting an animal, losing control of your vehicle and so on.
When the single-car accident happens because of a problem with the roadway, then you might able to pursue a roadway construction case against the owner of that roadway or a company that maintained the roadway on the owner’s behalf. Conversely, if a single car accident happened because of driver mistake, then the passengers involved in the wreck may be able to able to pursue a case against the driver him or herself. If this is the case, then the passengers might be able to recover compensation from the insurance policy of the at-fault driver. Specifically, the passengers may be able to recover compensation from the bodily injury (“BI”) policy of the at-fault driver. A bodily Injury policy covers a driver if he or she causes permanent or serious injuries or death resulting from an automobile crash. It covers such things as lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Also, you might be able to recover compensation from your own uninsured or underinsured motorist (“UM”) coverage if the at-fault driver did not carry bodily injury coverage or did not carry enough bodily injury coverage. If you are injured due to the negligence of another driver that either doesn’t have any insurance or doesn’t have enough insurance to compensate you for your injuries, then uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage protects you. In that situation, your uninsured or uninsured motorist coverage should step in and compensate you for your severe injuries.
If the at-fault driver did not have any bodily injury coverage, then uninsured motorist coverage should compensate you for your injuries. Underinsured motorist coverage, alternatively, would apply in the situation where the at-fault driver has bodily injury coverage but it was too little to cover you for your injuries (for instance, if the at-fault driver had a $10,000 BI policy, but your injuries were catastrophic). In that case, you underinsured motorist coverage would step in and cover you for any damages above the $10,000.This Palm Beach County Single Car Crash Law Firm Achieves Tremendous Results for Clients
Uninsured Motorist Coverage is not mandatory coverage. UM coverage pays you for injuries caused by an accident where the at-fault driver doesn’t have insurance or the coverage from the other driver is insufficient. UM coverage can be either “stacked” or “unstacked.” Stacked Uninsured Motorist coverage means that the amount of coverage will be multiplied by the number of vehicles in your household. For instance, if you own two cars and your UM limit is $100,000, you can combine your coverage limits for a total of $200,000. However, unstacked insurance coverage is the only available option if you have one vehicle in your household.
Finally, you may possibly be able to recover compensation from the UM policy of a resident-relative if you are injured by an uninsured or underinsured driver and you do not have any UM coverage. That is, if you live with a relative that has UM coverage, then you may be able to recover compensation from the policy of that relative should you be injured by an uninsured or underinsured driver.For a Free Consultation, Contact this South Florida Single Car Wreck/Collision Attorney Now
